SR 14 - Rockfall Mitigation White Salmon Vicinity - Complete September 2010

WSDOT made safety improvements to the State Route 14 corridor between mileposts 53.80 and 63.60. 

WSDOT uses a statewide unstable slope prioritization process to identify and rate potential slide areas. Recent maintenance records and geotechnical investigations identified this location as a high risk site and determined that rock fall prevention was necessary.

The project removed loose rock, unstable soil, trees, and other debris from these slopes. Crews installed rock anchors to stabilize the rock slope above the highway, and installed wire mesh fencing along the slope to protect motorists from potential rock fall.
